that the spying on chancellor merkel and other world leaders stopped after the obama administration launched an investigation. "the wall street journal" quoted a senior u.s. official as saying the nsa made the surveillance decisions. the newspaper says the official account of what happened suggests president obama went nearly five years without knowing about the spying on world leaders. it reports obama was briefed on broader intelligence collection priorities, but didn't make decisions on specific targets. and it says the president only learned of the spying after his administration launched internal and external probes of national security agency operations a few months ago. the decision followed revelations by former nsa contractor, edward snowden, who said agents had been secretly gathering the phone and internet data of private citizens. u.s. officials tell "the wall street journal" that american agents have suspended spying on merkel and other world loaders, but they say the agency is still monitoring other leaders because some of the programs are producing useful intelligence. >>> smo

has been embarrassing for the obama administration at a time when it hardly needs more bad news. is it more than an embarrassment? should it raise alarms abroad and at home? at first glance this is a story that is less about ethics and more about power. the great power gap between the united states and other countries even rich european ones. the most illuminating response came from the former foreign minister of france. he said in a radio interview, let's be honest we eavesdrop too. everyone is listening to everyone else. he went on to add we don't have the same means as the united states which makes us jealous. america spends tens of billions of dollars on intelligence collection. it's hard to get data to make good comparisons but it is safe to assume that washington's intelligence budget dwarfs that of other countries just as it does with defense spending. it is particularly strange that this rift should develop between the united states and its closest allies in europe. it was predictable and in fact in a sense predicted. in 2002, the british diplomat robert cooper wrote an
of the obama administration's handling of the region, the last measure of american foreign policy should be how it is received by the house. if there were a price for most irresponsible foreign policy, it would be surely be awarded to saudi arabia. it is the nation most responsible for the rise of islamic radicalism and militancy across the world. over the past four decades, the kingdoms immense oil wealth has been used to underwrite the export of an extreme intolerant and violent version of islam. go anywhere in the world from germany to indonesia and you will find islamic centers flush with saudi money spouting intolerance and hate. a top treasury official said -- >> if i could snap my fingers and cut off funding from one country, it would be saudi arabia. >> hillary clinton confirmed that saudi arabia remained a critical financial base for terrorism. she also said that there was only limited action to stop flow of funds from taliban and other such terrorists groups. saudi arabia was one of three countries in the world to recognize and support the taliban-led government in afghanistan until t

questions for the administration to answer. president obama would not confirm the nsa was spying on the phone calls of u.s. allies like germany's chancellor angela merkel. in an interview, he both defended u.s. intelligence activities. >> the national security operations generally have one purpose and that is to make sure the american people are safe. >> reporter: and conceded that maybe they'd gone too far. >> i'm initiating, now, a review, to make sure what they're able to do doesn't necessarily mean what they should be doing. >> senior administration officials tell cnn president obama did not know about the nsa surveillance of merkel and other allies until earlier this year. when he found out, he ordered a stop to some of the programs. the democratic chairman of the senate intelligence committee dianne feinstein, usually an ally of the white house, says that's not good enough and want s a, quote, total review of all u.s. intelligence programs. in washington this week pressing for the limits. telling me eu citizens find u.s. spying disturbing. >> they feel very uneasy. they don
different than in terms of president george w. bush. >> the obama administration spied on at least 35 foreign governments according to "the wall street journal". they did not deny the spying. the white house said all spying tactics are under review. some have already been canceled like surveillance of german chancellor angela merkel's cellphone. it has infuriated he and severely damaged u.s. relations. a prominent newspaper said obama had known of the spying since 2010. he was informed personally that year. the administration denied that confrontation took place. the mess in europe is now spilling into some corners of congress. >> they don't believe ever listening to the head of state of an ally is appropriate. i would hope the president is as upset as all of us are in congress. >> reporter: some lawmakers say europe needs to grow up. >> if the french citizens knew exactly what that was about they would be applauding and popping champagne corks. it's a good thing. >> reporter: the white house promised merkel the surveillance canada. others want the same rules. >> senior correspondent
.s. under the obama administration, is backing off a lot of the burden sharing, a lot of the heavy lifting that traditionally the u.s. has done in support of its allies over the past. >> because of the fallout, bought of the anger amongst the world leaders, julian, do you think someone's head should roll over this? >> well, we're going to see what the administration does. i think two things to remember. president obama himself raised a lot of the expectations about the differences with how he would conduct national security operations and those resonated both here and around the world. so it might be that in the end, he tries to blame someone. he himself now by -- with this report coming out that he ordered this to stop, it's something of an admission this shouldn't be business as usual. and the second thing is, this is a surveillance that's very different than people were used to in previous years because of e-mail and internet spying. so i think the president is going to do something. and i do think he's feeling that the political fallout is significant. >> christiane and julian, my than
and nothing is going to happen. the nsa is turning on the obama administration. there is serious fissure right now and that is a dangerous issue of national security that our own intel is turning against the president and leaking that he did know. he was briefed every day on this. >> you don't have to cry about it. >> oh my god. >> i did that in one breath. >> i just remembered i am on this show. i have a couple points. the reason that we started listening in on merkel's phones was an accident. there was a meeting and joe biden looked at a picture of her and said i would tap that. >> did you watch the bier report last night? >> did they say that? >> yes. >> i did not watch colbert. since president obama did not think we were spying on allies and he thinks it is awful he should thank edward snowden for reviewing this. i think he owes edward snowden a little something. >> you do bring up snowden and baker you mentioned his name a couple times. what is going on here? why are we going to get him? >> here is the problem. this is a self-inflicted wound. if the president had done what you would
be the case. >> not true. >> it's bad pr for the obama administration. unfortunately that is how they sold healthcare reform. i think a lot of people would agree that the administration didn't do a good job selling it. the fact remains that insurance companies discontinue plans all the time. >> they did it before healthcare reform and they are doing it more now because a lot of plans wouldn't qualify under the new protections that everybody is pieced to have. the concept of canceling insurance and raising premiums and discontinuing policies is not nothing new. that is one of the argument being made. this is what the president had too say today. >> now if you had one of these sub standard planks before the affordable care ablghtd became law and you really like that plan, you are able to keep it. that is what i said. when i was running for office. that was part of the promise we made. if insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these sub standard plans, what we said under the law is that you have to replace them with quality comprehensive coverage. so if you are getting one of these lergs, ju

. he says president obama has yet to master the management of his administration. of information within his administration. obama, who like many presidents had no executive experience before taking office has never pretended to care much about the details of governing. he prefers the big speech to congressional arm-twisting, the big reform to incremental change and the big foreign policy ambition to cultivating head of state relationships. it means that obama has appeared to be caught unaware as controversies envelop his administration. the west wing that he runs seems more like liabilities than benefits, raising questions about how much information obama wants and how he receives it. this president doesn't seem to be as relentlessly curious about the process of government. from peter baker -- peter baker writes, those cases underscore the difficult choices in what to tell a president. aides determined that it would be inappropriate for the president to have advanced knowledge of the irs investigation. beresident should not involved in such investigations or law-enforcement cases becaus
